Explore the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park

The Great Barrier Reef is home to the largest coral reef system in the world. It covers an area of 344,400km2 and is in fact bigger than the UK, Holland and Switzerland combined! It is so vast that you can even see it from space. Being so large means that there is plenty to explore and with Sydney Sundancer, you have the opportunity to snorkel amongst it all. The yacht has a water level swimming platform, which is where you prepare and fit your snorkelling gear before easily stepping into the water. Come face-to-face with angelfish, parrotfish, reef sharks, green sea turtles, manta rays, clown fish and more! Your Master Reef Guide will be in the water with you to tour you around and show off the different corals and creatures. After your time in the water, take advantage of the onboard library which is home to a wide selection of marine books teeming with information on the fish, corals and creatures you just encountered.

Snap Photos at Iconic Whitsundays locations

The Whitsunday Islands are made up of 74 individual islands which means there are endless locations to explore. Sydney Sundancer is one of the few yachts in the Whitsundays which has a year-round Long Range Roving Permit, allowing for access to exclusive and remote locations. Luckily, your crew will curate a personalised itinerary for you to visit some of these off-the-beaten-path destinations that you wouldn't normally see otherwise. Weather depending you'll visit Hill Inlet Lookout, Whitehaven Beach, and other secluded island bays. You won't want to forget your camera for this trip as the places you visit are postcard-worthy and worth remembering!

Sail on a Famous Yacht

Sydney Sundancer is quite known amongst the sailing world in Sydney. The luxe yacht is Australia's most awarded charter vessel, winning the Australia Day Council's prize for being the best dressed commercial vessel in Sydney Harbour 13 times! Donning over fifty Australian flags hanging along the ropes and off the side, the yacht couldn't be missed. Not only that, the yacht has been recognised as the "Best Harbour Wedding Reception Vessel" in New South Wales 5 times. During your trip through the Whitsundays, you will have the opportunity to take the helm and call yourself 'captain' of this famous yacht for the day (with the help and supervision of the skipper, of course).
